“A film is – or should be- more like music than like fiction. It should be a progression of moods and feelings. The theme, what’s behind the emotion, the meaning, all that comes later.” — Stanley Kubrick
“TV shows and movies are a rare form of atemporality, and in an ever-changing, always on world, spoilers feel irrefutable – sheer access to them gives the illusion of control.” —Jenna Wortham
“So many books, so little time.” — Frank Zappa
“A book is a dream you hold in your hand.” — Neil Gaiman
“There will always be story-telling, whether it’s on the big silver screen, or it’s your television or whatever, people will keep on telling stories.” — Stellan Skarsgard
“It’s not what a movie is about, it’s about how it is.” —- Roger Ebert
“Words! Mere words! How terrible they were! How clear, and vivid, and cruel! One could not escape from them. And yet what a subtle magic there was in them! They seemed to be able to give a plastic form to formless things, and to have a music of their own as sweet as that of viol or of lute. Mere words! Was there anything so real as words?” —- Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray
“Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers.” — Charles William Eliot
Today marks the one year anniversary of my blog. Although it has not quite turned out to be everything I imagined it would be, it’s still pretty cool and I’m still quite proud of myself. I’m also pretty thankful to all of those who read my posts, commented on them, or even followed me. Y’all are awesome.
In order to mark the one year anniversary, I’ve decided to share one of my favourite quotes on this blog. I hope it brightens your life as it has mine.
“So plant your own gardens and decorate your own soul, instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.” — Jorge Luis Borges
“Every great film should seem new every time you see it.” — Roger Ebert
